If you have telnet run by inted as you suggest then the telnet daemon will be started when a connection is made to the telnet port.
So ps -aux|grep -i telnet will show nothing if there is noone connected.
The best way to check if telnet is running is 'netstat -a|grep telnet'. a line like
tcp 0 0 *:telnet *:* LISTEN
means telnet is running.
Or of course just log into the machine and 'telnet 127.0.0.1' :)
but see the other mails about ssh!
